Funny / Princess Tutu

Go To

  • One of the show's downright funniest scenes occurs in Akt 12. Fakir, after falling into a large trench with Ahiru/Duck, becomes heavily embarrassed and thus flustered when he learns Ahiru is actually "the" duck he consoled with while crying in episode 10. Since Fakir is usually as guarded as Fort Knox, this makes it five times funnier. The fact that Ahiru suddenly turns into a girl again and doesn't consider her nude status in front of Fakir until too late makes the scene only that much more hilarious. He becomes even more unnerved; he hurls her clothes at her, knocking her over, and shouts, “Don’t stand!”
  • Akt 14
    • When Ahiru/Duck bumps into Mytho, she sees Fakir with him. She asks him how his wound is going, to which he responds that seeing her face has made them worse. Mytho procedes to tell them that saying so isn’t nice while Ahiru/Duck vigorously nods and glares at Fakir with violently twitching fingers.
    • When Ahiru, feeling guilty about keeping secrets is about to confess to Mytho that she is Princess Tutu, Fakir interrupts her in a Look Behind You fashion. The scene is made more hilarious with his seemingly outlandish (though possible in the Princess Tutu universe) excuses and Mytho’s nonchalant reaction.
    Duck: Um, I... Well, the truth is... The truth is...
    Duck: QUACK!
    (Fakir yanks Mytho and faces him away from Duck just in time for him to miss her turning into a duck.)
    Fakir: ...Is flying right over there. ...No, maybe it's a crocodile?
    Mytho: There's nothing there. And Princess Tutu and a crocodile are totally different anyway, Fakir. ...Fakir?
    Fakir: Oh? Right. Maybe I was just imagining things. I really thought I saw a flying cow, but...
    • The scene eventually ends with Mytho wondering where Ahiru/Duck has gone. When Fakir brushes off her absence as her leaving since some of the things he’s said put her off, Mytho calmly responds that he needs to treat girls nicer. This earns him a look of surpise.

  • When Fakir opens a door and pretty much every girl in the school falls in.
  • Ahiru flailing over Mytho in early episodes, made funnier by his nonchalant reactions.
  • Duck!Ahiru, plus Uzura, plus Fakir, plus water. In addition to having a Luminescent Blush, Fakir develops a fascination with staring at blank walls and diving behind buildings.
  • When Ahiru is "rescued" by Fakir in the boy's locker room.
  • Anytime Ahiru's friends Pike and Lilie try to help her in her lovelife.
  • When Ahiru tries to confess that she is Princess Tutu to Mytho, Fakir intervenes and shouts, "PRINCESS TUTU." Ahiru quacks and turns into a duck, cue Fakir pushing Mytho to the side and saying this,
    Fakir: "I saw her flying, over there, in the sky. But then again, it may have been a crocodile."
  • "I will have you MAAAAAAAAAARRY MEEEEE!"
  • Any scene with Femio in it. Period. No wonder he's an Ensemble Dark Horse/One-Episode Wonder.

  • In Akt 20, an outtake accidentally left in the dub results in Fakir randomly saying he's going to write a letter to the President while staring at a paper and pen.
  • Drosselmeyer, being the kooky man he is, gets a few, most notably when Rue after having taken Mytho makes a comment aimed at Drosselmeyer, who replies "Huh what? Who said!?," in utter shock.
  • The first line in the series.
    Narrator: Once upon a time, there was a man who died.
    • Not all that funny in and of itself, but the first line of the series was also the very first line in JesuOtaku's review. The second line is JesuOtaku commenting, "That was a short story, wasn't it?"
  • When Ahiru and the others find their happy ending, Drosselmeyer is leaning forward in his rocking chair so dumbfounded, he, chair and all, come forward slamming his face into the gear below.
  • The bloopers themselves are quite funny with special mention going to "Travolta back in the day" and "Never touch the Mytho."
  • The scene in Akt 19 where Duck and Hermia are talking and they notice Lysander, the guy Hermia has a crush on. "Doesn't he just exude kindness?" Hermia gushes. Cut to Lysander, who clearly has the Face of a Thug, while Duck hesitatingly agrees. And then Lysander walks past Mr. Cat, who thinks Hermia's adoring gaze is being aimed at him and promptly goes nuts.
